Natural Cleaning: DIY Toilet Bombs

  While many of us may be trying to cut out toxic chemicals from our cleaning regime, there are a few areas where it can be tough to feel confident in cleanliness with homemade cleaning options. The bathroom is a prime example of a room where we’ve been conditioned to think in terms of strong bacteria-killing, disinfecting chemicals. These toilet bombs may look cute and adorable, but they are also packed full of strong cleaning power. The Baking Soda, Borax, and Citric Acid all serve well as cleaning agents and the essential oils add more beneficial cleansing properties, as well as a wonderful clean scent! To use, drop one bomb into the toilet bowl and allow to fizz and dissolve. Scrub and flush. You do […]

The Sunday Steep!

If you are an herb junky like me, you may have bags and jars of herbs you purchased, grew or gathered filling your pantry shelves and yet you reach for the same "comfortable" ones time and time again. It can be a little intimidating and confusing wondering what else one can do with those beautiful crimson elderbrries besides making elderberry syrup once a year? We tend to reach for the leaves and flowers to make our trusty cups of herbal tea because that is what we know. But deeply flavored tree berries, woody bark, and dehydrated roots carry good medicine and make for wonderful soothing beverages too! It just might take a little more steeping time and provide you with […]

Salmon Adventures at the River Clean-Up!

  We recently ventured outdoors for another Mountain Rose River Project! Nothing makes us happier than spending the day in the sunshine collecting trash from a section of riverbank that Mountain Rose Herbs adopted in 2012. And we had a surprise visitor who put the cherry on top! Shawn Donnille, co-owner and Vice President, shares his thoughts about the day: At midday we stopped for lunch on the banks of the scenic North Fork of the Middle Fork Willamette River. As we approached the sandy riverbank, we saw a massive steel structure shaped like a cylindrical cup turned on its side and buoyed in the water by cables. Attached was a turbine spinning and making a whining noise. I am familiar with the […]
